Veterans with minor injuries and illnesses can receive accessible, high-quality care close to home thanks to Veterans Affairs-approved services at two Saltzer Health urgent care clinics.
The urgent care clinics are located at 215 E. Hawaii Ave. and 9850 W. St. Luke’s Drive in Nampa.
The benefit is considered “open access,” which allows veterans to access urgent care within VA’s community care network.
“We are pleased to be able to serve our nation’s veterans as part of the VA Mission Act of 2018,” said Stacy Chessmore, Salter Health urgent care clinical director. “We can provide veterans with greater choice and access to timely treatment for influenza, minor burns, skin infections and other minor illnesses.”
Urgent care providers treat injuries and illnesses that require immediate attention but are not life-threatening.
